    what do you think about them? is the green or black label japan more desireable? and how much do they normally go for?

    I am just wondering because I was offered a trade, my jekyll and hyde for their mij green label ce2, and wanted to know if it was a good deal...

    thanks

    The black label with the metal battery cover screw is the most desirable.

    I had a MIJ green label. I didn't like it. It just wasn't what I was looking for. I paid $100 for it, and that was definately on the high side, but it was in almost perfect condition.

    No matter which version, the CE-2 is a good chorus; but it really shines with the Robert Keeley speedy mod. I have this on one and love it.

    Like scott says, it's a good chorus...a classic. I've had MIJ and Taiwanese, and could not tell a significant difference. I'd get a tai cheap and let Keeley do his thing.

    I've owned/worked on quite a few different green and black label black-screw CE-2's and have a hard time noticing much if any difference between then. Granted, I'm playing/testing them in my shop and not in some venue with a great PA system or great acoustics to really hear an amp in.

    I recently acquired a silver-screw CE-2 and haven't had much of a chance to compare it side-by-side with a black-screw black label (MIJ) CE-2, but will try to post my thoughts when I get a chance to do so this week.

    I primarily play acoustic right now and actually didn't even LIKE the CE-2 with an acoustic at first. I used to own/use a CE-5 which I was really fond of and the CE-5 always seemed to win out in my book. Maybe it's just a phase I'm going through right now, but the CE-2's do sound much richer to me now. I really dig 'em.
